Interior Skin and Floor...overlaps?


In order to get full edge-to-edge access to subfloor, can I remove inside skins?

Or do I need to raise the whole shell off the floor frame?

Yes, you can. You have to drill out all the rivets that hold it on. There's always a few you missed (or I did, anyway) when I thought I had them all done. Some people only take out the lower skins and not the upper. We took out everything and are going to reinsulate it all in something other than pink! It's best to figure out where the last piece went on and start there as they all overlap.
Good luck!

Sorry, none that I know of. I keep a snap trap in the rear access area and several inside the coach that way an infestation cant get started. If you want to be really proactive you can place a bait station or two outside the trailer with a snap trap inside the station.
There is an insulation called TAP that is insect resistant, but I dont recommend it inside the trailer.
